I got this idea from one of my Low Carb cookbooks. It called for low carb bread and some other ingredients that I don't have. So I used the base for tuna and cauliflower and made my own version.
1 16oz bag of frozen cauliflower
1/4 cup golden flax meal
2 lg eggs
2-5oz can chunk tuna in water, drained
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp lemon pepper seasoning(watch for added sugar in ingredients, I used Trader Joe's brand)
2 Tbsp dried parsley
Steam cauliflower until tender. Let cool slightly. Add to food processor and pulse. Add the eggs and pulse until combined. Pour mixture into a bowl, add flax meal and stir until combined. Let mixture sit for 5 minutes.
After the 5 minutes, add tuna and seasonings.
On Medium high heat, lightly coat a large nonstick skillet with olive oil. When the skillet is hot, drop 1/4 cup of mixture( I used a ice cream scoop) and flatten with a rubber spatula to form a pattie. Cook for 3 minutes and then flip. Let the other side cook for 3 more minutes. Makes about 13 patties
I topped mine with 1 tsp mayo and a sprinkle of dill weed.
